Charlotte Poire Belle Hélène found in #Paris

Charlotte Poire Belle Hélène
This amazing dessert is made from pears poached in sugar syrup and served with vanilla ice-cream. It was created in 1864. The name comes from a operetta La belle Hélène.
France has so many amazing desserts and pastries it is hard to choose just one when you walk into a pâtisserie. This is a dessert not to be missed. The combination of pears and syrup on top of the moist sponge cake make each bite melt in your mouth.
Mini-Lili's first babysitters were sisters- Hélène et Charlotte. Did their mom name them after this amazing dessert!
Bon appétit!
